A farming revolution is spreading across Virginia. Crop producers are switching to continuous no-till systems; livestock farmers are switching to rotational grazing. Both approaches save the farmer time and money. They also benefit the land, restoring soil health and dramatically cutting runoff and erosion. The net result is more profitable and productive farms- and better water quality downstream.
In our two movies, each just 15 minutes long, a dozen Virginia farmers explain how continuous no-till and managed grazing have improved their farms and their lives. Also featured are amazing soil and water demonstrations that show how these farmers are truly gaining ground.
These videos are produced by as a public service by The Downstream Project in connection with the USDA and the Natural Resources Conservation Service.
